deductions and which loopholes. you mitt romney likes to talk about the middle class squeeze. wages down and all kinds of prices are up. >> do you realize over the last four years, every year you have seen the median income in america come down. income is down some 4,300 a family. the middle class squeeze has been unbearable. gasoline prices way up. food prices up, electricity prices up. health insurance costs up. >> the facts in this, easy to fin. median income down over the last four years, but only about 2,500 since president obama took office and prices for all those items are up, though, food and electricity barely, so the verdict is true, but misleading. mitt romney inflated the number he used by adding in a year from the bush administration. a lot of nuance we hope to lay out. >> during the 90-minute debate, you will be working with a great team. let's go back to the debate hall with candy crowley. >> we're hearing from various officials, a university official and then the first ladies will introduced. they are now in the hall. i want to go to senator kelly ann. called into duty.

president has been hunkered down in nevada. >> mitt romney's campaign called tonight's debate a restart of the campaign. this morning on the "today" show, stephanie cutter and former republican candidate rick santorum laid out what both candidates hope to accomplish in denver. >> i think the test for both candidates is who is going to lay out a vision, a details, specific vision of how to move the country forward. i think the candidate that does that will win the test. american people are going to sit at home looking for details. president obama is going to continue to do that. he's been having that conversation for some time. mitt romney has not done that. tonight offers him the opportunity to do that. >> we are not talking about accomplishing a lot. two or three things to accomplish. one is to show he is in command, he's in control, he understands the job of the presidency. he put barack obama on the defense where he should be given his horrific record on the economy and national security. i think he will do that and be tough with the president. i don't think the president will react wel

enjoying some down time with romney's grandkids, getting ready before the big night coming up an hour from now. candy. >> thanks, jim. before i toss it back to you, anderson, i'm reminded of a quick conversation i had with george bush when he first ran for president in the year 2000. had a reputation of being a really mean guy. and i asked him, and he said i got that reputation when i was defending my dad during his re-election campaign. so much easier to run than to watch someone love run. i think the pressure tonight certainly on these two men who want to be president, but there might be more pressure on first lady michelle obama and, of course, ann romney as they watch their husbands tonight. anderson. >> really interesting. we're hearing from both women tonight. cnn exclusive, brand new interviews with michelle obama and ann romney, opening up about debate preparations and the pressure on their husbands, first, interview with ann romney, her family calls her the mitt stabilizers, gloria borgeer asked her if that is the role she's playing leading up to tonight's debate. >> absolute

up on the middle class. obviously governor romney says that is not the case but this downed frommen middle class would be even more down trodden. how should, if that comes up, the governor spend to that tonight? >>guest: there are two ways. he is proposing a 20 percent cut in the marginal rates for everyone. he is also proposing getting rid of capital gains if middle class l is no preliminary to raise taxes on the middle class. that is made up. it is not true. what governor romney needs to do in the campaign, i think, is to establish there are two distinct visions here. one vision is, you don't know what will happen in the next four years with the economic policy or with international policy. there are two ways to look at things: one is how the president looks at it. every solution is government, government, government. that is you who he will approach problems including tax and the middle class. governor romney will approach problems as someone who wants to support the private sector, would believes in economic and individual freedom, wants to release the american spirit and releas
